Victim Crime Survey- by Ann Young
I carried out a self- report victim survey. The questions that i asked included whether the participants in the survey experienced crime such as vandalism, robbery, burglary, bullying and cyber bullying, being mis-sold products, fraud, hate crime, and being threatened with a weapon. I also asked whether they were victims of crime more serious to the others listed.My results are shown in the table below.
|Have you ever been a victim of vandalism?||0||5|
|Have you ever been a victim of a robbery?||0||5|
|Have you ever experienced bullying?||3||2|
|Have you ever experienced cyber bullying?||2||3|
|Have you ever been mis-sold products?||1||4|
|Have you ever been a victim of fraud?||0||5|
|Have you ever been a victim of hate crime?||0||5|
|Have you ever experienced burglary or housebreaking?||2||5|
|Have you ever been threatened with a weapon?||0||5|
|Have you ever experienced a crime that you consider to be more serious offenses than the ones listed above?||1||5|
We also asked for age, gender and race. All the participants were white British females and 4/5 of them were 17 years old ( the other was 16 years old). To improve this survey i would ask a wider range of people to get more representative results and also ask a wider age range if possible such as the A2 pupils and maybe teachers.
